In the movie The Interpreter, the character played by Nicole Kidman says, “Vengeance is a lazy form of grief.” If we’re honest, most of us have moments where we caste a silent hex on our ex, wishing them a head full of lice or that all their teeth will fall out except the one with […]

A Sticky Situation

March 25th, 2013
There it was, right in front of us in the traffic. We were trapped- No way round it, we just had to sit behind it. Stare at it and then have a great big whopping detailed conversation that I didn’t particularly want on the drive to school that morning. the bumper sticker said- “Abortion. Big […]

An Examined Life

March 25th, 2013
There’s a billboard on the way into town advertising a tanning salon. There’s a bright orange girl on it, almost radioactive looking, and the caption, “I tan so that I can feel good all year round.” Having grown up on the sun drenched beaches of Eastern Australia, completely oblivious to the dangers of skin cancer, […]

Standing Up To Racism

March 8th, 2013
A 50- something year old white woman arrived at her seat on a crowded flight and immediately didn’t want the seat. The seat was next to a black man. Disgusted, the woman immediately summoned the flight attendant and demanded a new seat. The woman said “I cannot sit here next to this black man.” The […]
I love underdog stories, and I don’t think it’s just me. There is something in all of us that roots for the battlers who overcome odds to achieve greatness. We can appreciate and enjoy the large, anticipated successes, but there’s something special about surprising success when small stars with small budgets achieve huge success, like […]
The basis for authenticity is to think your own thoughts, know what you value and boldly live it no matter how strong the pressure to conform. When something is true for you, you HAVE to live it, even if the path is hard, your voice shakes, and few people understand you. The alternative is to […]

For the Childrens’ Sake

December 17th, 2012
The African Masai tribes greet each other with the phrase “Kasserian ingera”, which means “are the children well?” Even warriors with no children of their own give the traditional answer. “All the children are well.” It means more than just that children are well. When society treats children well, society is well. With last week’s […]

SEED OF HOPE

December 8th, 2012
Cateura, Paraguay is a town essentially built on top of a landfill. Garbage collectors browse the trash for sellable goods, and children are often at risk of getting involved with drugs and gangs. When orchestra director Szaran and music teacher Favio set up a music program for the kids of Cateura, they soon have more […]
John Mayer expressed what so many of us feel. In the face of a barrage of seemingly unsolvable problems (poverty, unemployment, global warming, the coming fiscal cliff, to name a few) we don’t know how we can make an impact, so “we keep waitin on the world to change.” How do you win this waiting […]

Near Death

November 5th, 2012
I just about died today. Nearly, honestly. This isn’t one of those over dramatized stories, this is all true. And it happened the day before the American elections. My last breath was almost taken on a treadmill at the local gym at 8:16am Monday morning. It was a typical workout, all going according to schedule. […]
I’m completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death. George Carlin I agree with George. The separation of church and state is extremely important. At its heart, it’s about preserving religious […]

Speaking Tough Truth

October 16th, 2012
I auditioned for a choir when I was 10; just me and the choir director huddled in a small room. I was so nervous, I could barely hold it together. She asked me to sing “Silent Night!”.” I don’t think she appreciated my literal interpretation of “silent.” After about 10 seconds of my measlie mezzo […]

October 2nd, 2012
Simple really. Just notes. Notes tucked into books. His idea, all his. An afternoon of errands. Dull, boring, mindless endless jobs “Just running in” He waited in the car with his thoughts. “Right, library next’ I bustle checking things off. Not quite done. He sat with scraps of paper on his lap. Notes to somebody. […]

Dare To Be by Steve Maraboli

September 30th, 2012
When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully. When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light. When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it. When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway. When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back. When […]

Blaze Your Own Trail to Change

September 25th, 2012
When it comes to change, there are three paths to take; waiting for life to happen TO you, making things happen, and turning around and wondering what happened. The first path lacks responsibility. The last path lacks intention. The middle path is the way to go. It is for sure the road less traveled, but […]
